HELIX by Legacy

So when are we gonna see a review of HELIX from Legacy.....it has to trounce any other system out there at the extreme high end of speakers, they are probably over $45K a set? I wanna see them mono amped with 6 AVA units using 3 per side and it's internal 750W Sub amp, a bunch of AVA Hafler OmegaStar EX units stacked and cranking out 1200W-1400W RMS, John, this will be the most incredible audio experience ever...go for it...get a hold of both Bill D. and Frank VanAlstine make it happen....

I mentioned your idea to Big Mike and He was surprised. he said, "Why the 6 AVA's? The Helix speakers include stands. If those won't do, cinder blocks are a cheaper alternative than AVA's."

Just messing with ya DUP. It would be an interesting review. You should buy that set up and lend it out for review!

Re: HELIX by Legacy

6 AVA OmegaStar EX/Hafler P500 I have...HELIX is the BIG BIG BIG hurdle. The Helix needs 3 amps external per side,treble,mid,low, it uses it's built in 750W for the built in Sub. It is one impressive setup. I would then need 3 more AC lines...man this thing could grow out of control. But as other's keep telling me, let the ears decide, and you don't think this setup would be the ULTIMATE ear nirvana? Then there is the issue of a floor to support it all, now I need a new house.....BLOSE never created these "problems".

Helix include stands? I think someone is on another planet. Last version of Helix i seen where 300 pound monsters sitting on the floor. Cinder blocks don't have the density of cement blocks which are now used for building foundations...cinder blaocks are unuseable. Are they even mfg'd even. Probably a poured concrete wall would be best.

Re: HELIX by Legacy

DUP -- ummm, how do I say this politely. "Stands," in speaker-speak, include spikes, knobs, buttons, casters, or any structural support under the speakers, built-in or added on, to help, er, support or stabilize the enclosure. Mike was merely suggesting that, a propos the extremely high-efficiency monsters the Helix designs surely are, the extra four amps would be about as useful as, well, cinder blocks. Mike, sorry to explain your jokes, but 25 years of teaching have put me into the habit of explaining everything, even to the sleepers. Cheers and happy hi-fi.

Re: HELIX by Legacy

No such thing as too many watts, like everyone keeps saying let teh ears decide, I've heard system with 1 amp, then 2 then 4..guess what 4 is better than any of em...Watts, there is no substitute. Helix is designed for 3 amps per side, check out the manual on line at Legacy audio, it has 3 amp hookups, also it's internal 750W amp....it goes back to Impact, Slam and REALISM, watts make it happen, on a speaker that can use it.
